African Giant Burna Boy Affirms That Nigerians Still Use Marijuana
Grammy-Winning Nigerian music star Burna Boy has observed that hypocrisy is why marijuana is yet to be legalized in Nigeria.
Its Commonplace that Marijuana (also called weed, cannabis, skunk, or Igbo) is still illegal in Nigeria, although it hasn’t stopped its widespread use.
Contained in a report by the United Nations Office on Drug and Crime (UNODC), as of 2018 revealed marijuana to be the most consumed ‘drug’ in Nigeria, being consumed by an estimated 10.8% of the nation’s population.
Recently During a conversation about it in an interview with Home Grown Radio in Los Angeles, Burna Boy said he believes that hypocrisy is the major reason it has not been legalized in Nigeria.
He said, “It’s not a zero-tolerance. It’s like everybody does it, but no one wants to be the one that is seen with it. It’s just kind of hypocritical out there. Everybody smokes weed,” Burna Boy stated.
The multi-nominated Grammy award-winning singer also said that misconception around the drug is another reason why it has not been legalized by the authorities.
He added that “It’s like some dumb shit, bro. You know those old shit when they talk about it frying your brains. They try to make it seem like if you smoke it, you will go mad,” the singer said. And “Right now, everybody is relaxed, everybody does it, and everybody knows that. It’s just a topic no one wants to talk about.
“No one wants to talk about it; everybody is cool. Nobody wants to make it a thing.”
When Asked if people get arrested for possession of marijuana in Nigeria, the 30-year-old singer says it depends on who you are, and “If you can please the person that is stopping you at a time,” he added.
